(ATLANTA) August 27, 2012 – Music and entertainment maverick Jermaine Dupri continues to diversify his discography with new releases this year, including his latest offering, the remix to German electro house producer/DJ Kurd Maverick’s “Hell Yeah.”
Released earlier this month, the electro dance track features an aggressive bassline and JD’s signature vocals in the chorus. “With the ‘Hell Yeah’ remix, I’m doing pretty much what I’ve always done to records,” says Dupri, “which is take a record that I like and remix it.”
Dupri — a resident DJ in Las Vegas with regular shows around the globe – maintains that songs like “Hell Yeah” dominate clubs outside the U.S. and are in the same vein as massive dance-pop hits such as Calvin Harris’ “We Found Love” feat Rihanna and the David Guetta-produced “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas.
“Every week, I’m in all these clubs that are infusing hip hop and electro music,” he says. “I’m constantly seeing these two worlds collide, so I felt like it would be a great collaboration to bring my vocals and celebrity to ‘Hell Yeah.’”

Marilyn Youngkin and her husband Bill are busy preparing what they call a big Texas breakfast.
Youngkin said, “He actually picks the fruit and makes the jelly.”
That means, homemade jelly–scrambled eggs, quail and of course a Texas-sized helping of biscuits and gravy.
Because of their daughter Katie’s job as an event planner, and a 14 city tour, a celebrity rolled into town.
Jermaine Dupri said, “It feels like a real neighborhood, like you came to a neighborhood, like a neighborhood you see on T.V…like, wow, I’ve never been to one of those before.”
Marilyn said, “Hi Jermaine! How are you?”
Record producer-rapper-songwriter Jermaine Dupri made a pit stop in Bryan during his promotional tour with Crown Royal.
“It’s probably the same demographic as my neighborhood, but I don’t have the neighbors don’t come over to my house and stuff like that, it’s a little different,” Dupri said.
Dupri is traveling to 14 cities in 14 days, hosting parties for members of his social media website, global 14.com
“I created a spot that’s made for people that have the same interest as me,” Dupri added.
That means anything from music to fashion, art and traveling.
“Matter of fact, you can, you know, hit me to something new and that I could be interested in and not even know about,” Dupri said. “I talk to people. I comment on things that they post. I regulate the site so there’s no stupidness going on. ”
If you want to be a part of anything that happens in his life…like this BCS breakfast…all you have to do is become an active member.
Youngkin said, “I looked up and I’m like, oh, you’re taking a picture of me while I’m taking a picture of you!”
She added, “He just makes you forget he’s so famous because he’s so real!”
This was Jermaine Dupri’s first visit to Bryan-College Station.
He expects to make the promotional tour an annual event.
The last three stops are in Houston tonight, then New Orleans and the promotion tour finishes in Miami.
